I haven't read the books so I don't know if there really just wasn't that much story to work with or if the screen writer and director are at fault for such a thin plot. I can see this making the rounds on the SyFy channel in the future. Entertaining B rate flick at a high price.

Not as awful as critics lead me to believe. the film was entertaining and a pretty decent fantasy film.
It seemed like a four hour story that was crammed into a two hour running time. so, it did feel rushed over. I think this was a nice overview of the original novel but a miniseries or a two film treatment would've better served what looked like a rich and fascinating world. hoping this gets a worthwhile extended edition release when it hits the home video market. I might also check out the orignal Seventh Son books also.
I would say that the film is worth seeing for the special effects, Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore (plus a pleasant appearance by Kit Harrington). just don't expect the truncated plot and rushed pacing to knock your socks off. 3 stars / C+

The action was pretty good and the pace was good. No big surprises. Plot was fairly predictable, but overall very fun to watch. I will definitely but the DVD when it comes out.
